“Don't overlook this wonderful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

This place is small, in an old building that is also a hotel on the main drag in Calistoga, but, it was a wonderful meal. This was last dinner of our trip and it was really wonderful. We ate at all the famous spots and this stacked up refreshingly. Wine pairings were off the beaten path but well done. We will be back.

“Fresh, Fascinating Flavors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

It was only a two-block walk from the Cottage Grove Inn where we stayed to the lively restaurant JoLe on Lincoln Ave. The corner bar height table seats four and is a perfect perch for people peeking. The menu is interesting and all the plates are medium size, great for sampling and sharing. We ordered squash blossoms stuffed with crab, arugula, pea pods, sardines, scallops, sweet breads, pork, and steak with each dish being wonderfully prepared and executed. The tastes popped, the sauces were light and luscious, and our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. This is a farm to table restaurant, energetic, and fun. Definitely make a point to visit Calistoga and eat here. (Stay at Cottage Grove Inns-adorable)

“Delicious new find in Calistoga!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

This amazing place has an interesting menu concept, share-able single course meals (can order individually or as a four + course meal, with or without wine pairings). Menu changes frequently. We enjoyed a delicious rabbit dish done two ways and loved the coconut cream pie. Can't wait to try it again.

“Disappointed in Jole”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

An article we read in Wine Enthusiast led us to this restaurant, but we were disappointed in the food. Portions were very small on all but one of our selections. Nothing was particularly outstanding. The service was good, but we cannot believe anyone thought this was the best restaurant in Napa!

“Average Meal with Poor Waiter”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Meal was average with strong flavored sauces on meat selections. Had a friendly waiter that entered our entrees as share so lady was serviced first and mine came after she was finished. Waiter and manager apologized and deducted my entree from tab. Overall image was simple rustic with hard wood chairs and wood table without table cloth but cloth napkins.
